Findagrave.com - It's not just about finding graves

... but you knew that, right?

On Findagrave's home page, on the left side of the page under the heading "Find Famous Graves," the link "Search by date" appears. Under this link, you will find the options of searching people who were either born or died on today's date. I hadn't used this feature before today, but I'm glad I tried it.

Born on this date was Hans Scholl, a man who lived but a short time, but who did his best with his lot in life. Click here to read his brief, inspiring life history.


  1. Hi, it's a very great blog.
    I could tell how much efforts you've taken on it.
    Keep doing!

  2. Interesting info thanks. I have so many pics and information from both my family and my dh's. Its a bit overwhelming.
    I read some of your ideas about dealing with the huge task. I'll try some.
